During November and December this year, visit our wine shop daily for socially distanced wine tastings! No need to reserve, just drop in to taste our delicious organic wine. The tasting is complimentary with purchase, or $10 per person if you just want to come in for the experience.
On Fridays and Saturdays we open all our expensive bottles and offer Gray Label tastings of our small lot, premium wines. The weekend is a great time to visit! This tasting is complementary with purchase of premium wine, or you are welcome to experience these rare, special vintages for $20 per person.
On Sundays, join Winery Sommelier Susan Watkins for an amazing sensory experience. Explore food & wine pairing and dive deeply into Summerhill's organic & biodynamic portfolio in an intimate guided conversation. You can find more information and book your seats here.
Our restaurant is currently open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, and for lunch on Sunday with a whole host of Local's Specials and theme nights. Find menus, more information, and make a reservation here.
We set out to make the most beautiful wines in the world; starting with organically and biodynamically grown grapes from the pristine Okanagan Valley, handling them with love and attention, allowing them to ferment naturally to retain the highest levels of antioxidants, and finishing the wines in our Pyramid Cellar built with precision Sacred Geometry and aligned to the stars to create a structure of stillness and harmony.
Our ambition is to bring pride to all Canadians. I’m thrilled to have witnessed this vision unfold with our portfolio of Cipes sparkling wines and Summerhill red, white and icewines being awarded among the wine world’s highest honours, including trophies and gold medals from France and England, as well as a special trophy naming Summerhill “Canadian Wine Producer of the Year” at the International Wine & Spirit Competition. All this for allowing nature to speak for herself! She does speak… and we listen. There is divine purpose in every blessed drop.
